just thinking

October 26, 2014

it’s been a difficult week

how different each of us is as an individual

with unique priorities, goals, talents and ways of solving problems

I feel bruised

but, as with all bruises, in time they will disappear

 P1050889a lesson learned

never warp the loom when your mind is totally occupied with other thoughts

I sleyed the reed incorrectly (24 epi) and wove the first tea towel before I realized that it was rather narrow

so I cut it off and re-sley

and I got it wrong again (18 epi)- too wide and too loose this time

third time I paid attention (20 epi), yes!

then – the events of the week reminded me of how insignificant my own problems really are

the first “tea and tell” after a summer break was a pleasant change

P1050882 Kathy’s overshot tea towels are lovely

P1050884Ann took a class at the Vavstuga Weaving School in Massachusetts this summer

everyone was eager to see her work

P1050888Arlene had two beautiful woven shawls, tea towels and was busy knitting hats for the winter

P1050881it would be wonderful if there was some sanity at the end of the rainbow

(I was stopped at a stop sign)!

    Stuff happens, eh? Maybe it was just the dreary weather. We’ve all got the blahs (or in my case, a migraine). The rainbow is a perfect mood-lifter! Feel better soon, my dear.

    i am sorry to hear of rough going. don’t our hands give us away when we are under too much duress? i hope things settle soon and the weaving goes along the way it should. i really really wish you better days and am sending a hug. (just to make you chuckle, the first time i typed it, it spelled it “hig”.) big HIG!

      Velma – thanks for the hug, and I’ll take the hig, too (only from you). think my brain has gone on a walk about. my hands don’t always work on remote.

    😦 I don’t like hearing that you’re having a tough time–I hope things look better soon. It’s nice that you got together with other weavers–they are certainly doing great things!

      Kerry – thank you. a few of my weaving students get together every month, the show and tell is always fun and we have all learned a lot.

    Your pinwheel weaving have been looking very tempting to me in all the colors and structure variations. I wish that sense of groundedness and peace apperar again and replace the bruises.

      Suzanna – wouldn’t that be lovely. with the weather we are having this month there have been a number of them.

      Lis – the weather has changed, hopefully there will be more rainbows. good friends make a big difference

    I’m so sorry to hear you had a rough week. Hope the bruises (in whatever form they have taken) heal soon. Big hugs!
